Burning urination, redness in penis and scrotum. How long will this last?

I work in a commercial shop. After work I washed my hands with lacquer thinner. Moments later I went to urinate. There was quick and painful burning. I reached for the closest thing which was hand sanitizer. This compounded the issue. Just over a day later, the light burning remains. Burning sensation and slight redness to the shaft and scrodum. It does not hurt urinating, but the hole has a slight burning sensation. Who long will this last ans is there anything I can do to aid the healing?

Good Day!

I would suggest just washing the area where the chemical burn occurred with very mild soap and water everyday. Keep the area always dry and away from irritants. No need for any medicines or ointment. Im sure it will go away in a few days (1-2 weeks). Best Wishes.
